I've been doing five minutes of yoga per day based on one of the settings of the "Sworkit" app. It's been fine -- nice to stretch out a bit at the start of the day -- but I suspect that particular set isn't doing me that much good.
I'm mainly interested in two things:
1. Someday touching my toes. Someday.
2. Reducing the tension in my shoulders.
My question: if I'm doing five minutes of yoga (or maybe just "stretching") per day, are there beginner poses that can help me accomplish those goals? And if so, should I check in with an instructor about doing it right before making that a daily practice?
 It's pretty much just the warm-up section of their "Full Sequence" set.
